He swims with sunglasses. That takes some serious skill. Plus by the looks of it, he definitely has the breathing technique down.

Golf: Justin Timberlake

This is what Justin said about golf back in 2011: “Entertaining and golf have two important things in common — rhythm and harmony. If you can dance well, when you get on the golf course, you’re going to have a nice harmonious, rhythmic golf swing.” Enough said.
